Cold Takes: Punctiliously Elegant
By M.G. Siegler • Issue #19 • View online
A couple days later, I still find myself thinking about the second presidential debate. Yes, the content was mildly insane – one candidate threatening to imprison another one – but just as with the last debate, it remains such a great showcase of what Twitter can be when firing on all cylinders. As it has during these debates. 
It seems sort of crazy to me that no one (apparently) wants to own Twitter. Or at least not badly enough to make a hard and fast move to scoop it up in this time of turmoil. That especially includes a certain sister company to where I work… (I have no inside knowledge of this, of course. Just my own opinion.) Just seems like such a no-brainer, that I feel like everyone is overthinking this. Turn on CNN. Turn on Fox News. Turn on ESPN. Twitter. Twitter. Twitter. How is that not insanely desirable? And valuable?
I know there’s fiduciary duty and all, but all of these behemoths have the teams to figure out how to make this work as a business too, no doubt. I just don’t get it. More importantly, I just don’t want it to go away.
